JBL Launching Voice Activated Speakers With Google Assistant
JBL has dipped its toes into the voice activated pond with its new JBL Link speakers embedded with Google Assistant where users can not only play music but ask the device questions.
JBL says users of the JBL Link can stream music, ask questions, manage everyday tasks, and easily control smart devices around the home — simply by using voice commands.
JBL says merging its signature sound and Google’s voice assistant technology, JBL LINK speakers bring together a powerful listening experience and a conversational voice assistant. The LINK speakers feature high-quality music streaming with Chromecast built-in, providing an elevated music experience, best-in class sound quality and endless entertainment from the most popular music and entertainment apps, all through a simple voice command.
Michael Mauser, president of the Lifestyle Audio Division at Harman says, “We are thrilled to pair JBL’s incredible legacy of award winning sound with our growing line-up of voice controlled speakers. JBL LINK is a first-class wireless smart speaker that allows consumers to entertain and enjoy world class sound in a sleek, portable package.”
The JBL Link speakers are available now from JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman from $229.
